What Are the Laws for Placing Snack Vending Machines?

Snack Vending MachinesAs with any other aspect of your business, placing snack vending machines in your building comes with certain laws and regulations you will have to follow. Let’s have a look at some of the common laws for food or drink vending machines.

First, you need to make sure you have the proper licensing in accordance with your building, city, and even state. Be sure to clear your new machine specifically with your landlord or building manager as well.

You also have to be sure your vending machine remains healthy and safe. Just like restaurant kitchens are often checked up on by the health department, your vending machine might also be inspected. Fortunately, most of the necessary precautions are also common sense:

  • If the power goes out, dispose of all your perishable food.
  • Take care of any rodent or insect infestations before placing your machine in an area.
  • Follow the recommendations for maintenance and repairs to ensure that your machine is functioning properly.

Follow these suggestions, and you’ll have the safest snack vending machines on the block!
